Framatome to collaborate with Polish National Centre for Nuclear Research

30 January 2024

Framatome has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Poland National Centre For Nuclear Research (NCBJ - Narodowym Centrum Badan Jadrowych) to explore collaborative opportunities in nuclear education and research. “Our collaboration will enhance the program, attracting and training students for long-term careers in nuclear energy,” said Elisabeth Terrail, Executive Vice President Human Resources at Framatome.

Framatome and NCBJ will work together on topics of common interest including structural mechanics, thermal hydraulics, EPR technology and safety analyses of nuclear components and systems. Lectures and other learning opportunities, joint research initiatives and internships within Framatome will cultivate a skilled workforce and contribute to the growth and success of Poland’s nuclear industry.

NCBJ Director Professor Krzysztof Kurek said the collaboration with Framatome “will let us enrich our scientific programme for training the professionals of nuclear industry in Poland and maybe conduct a common research project”. He added: “Without hesitation, our primary focus as a specialist of nuclear physics is the continual pursuit of advanced nuclear technology and research while preparing the young scientists for the future.” This agreement expands on the existing programmes with Wroclaw, Warsaw and Krakow Universities of Technology.
